How could you not love Dublin? It’s walkable, full of history and quite possibly one of the greatest places to have a pint in the world.
I was in Ireland back in September to travel the Wild Atlantic Way up in County Donegal. Seeing as Dublin was my gateway city, I knew I had to finagle a couple of extra days to join a 1916 Easter Rising walking tour and have a pint or two (or three or four) before I went home.
